Adam Zagoria covers basketball at all levels. He is the author of two books and an award-winning journalist whose articles have appeared in ESPN The Magazine, SLAM, Sheridan Hoops, Sports Illustrated, Basketball Times and in newspapers nationwide.
Kevin Parrom has set his list of visits and he will be busy the next several weekends.
“I am at [the] airport on my way to Pitt,” Parrom wrote Sunday morning in a text. “Next weekend I go to Arizona. And the weekend after that I go to Va. Tech.”
He will also take unofficial visits from his South Kent (Conn.) school to Providence and Rhode Island later this week.
“Sometime this week, most likely on Thursday,” he wrote.
A 6-foot-6, 200-pound small forward ranked No. 25 at his position in the Class of 2009, Parrom recently got his release from Xavier.
He is also considering Xavier but will not take another official visit there.
Former Xavier head coach Sean Miller and assistant Book Richardson are now at Arizona, which could draw Parrom to the West Coast.
RU WAITING ON BEATTY James Beatty, a 6-2 floor general from Miami Dade College, has been quiet since visiting Rutgers in late March.
Baylor, DePaul, Memphis and St. John’s have also reportedly been in the mix, but Beatty has not visited any of those schools in recent weeks.
“I’m probably going to take my time. I know it’s probably killing Rutgers and I feel bad because it’s taking so long,” Beatty told the Courier News in March.
Miami Dade coach Matt Eisele did not return a message seeking comment.
